The deep release you experience from yin yoga can stay with you for days, and Sarah's choice of yoga poses for this 60-minute yin yoga class are fantastic. As you can expect, deep stretches can be hard to do, but they provide the greatest sense of relief once you're done. Sarah helps you get through it with her gentle, encouraging guidance and her soft smile. Note: to learn how to make your own bolster at home, click here.

This was my first practice after a long hiatus from yoga... My life has become more sedentary, and hip and back issues have been plaguing me. I was reminded of how these problems pretty much disappeared when I was regularly taking yoga classes, so I found this website and said "let's see..." It's crazy how doing so little can make you feel so much! and Pigeon on the first day... yikes! but I breathed through it and was able to finish feeling good. I'm back! and looking forward to healing in 2016

I'm working on opening up a severely imbalanced set of hips. This practice today has made me feel tremendous, and very hopeful for future progress. Thank you.

Wonderful class and welcome!
I am trying to balance my energy adding more Yin! After your class I realized how much I hold on to things and how scary surrender can be! But the reward and joy when I allowed myself to let go will keep me coming back!
Thank you for this a powerful lesson for me!
At 61 I'm still learning!
